The futuristic pickup Tesla Cybertruck has already collected 250 thousand pre-orders. Despite the crack in the glass

Tesla CEO Elon Musk continues to share the success of the unusual Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck, which was presented

last Friday.

Plank is growing

In just two days, the manufacturer collected 146 thousand pre-orders for the Tesla Cybertruck, and now, after 5 days, there are already more than 250 thousand.

Let us remind you that to place a pre-order, you mustpay only $100. True, this money can then be returned, so how many real buyers will remain in the end is unknown. But there’s still a long wait: Cybertruck production will begin in 2021, and the top version with higher mileage and speed will be released in 2022.

What about glass?

During the presentation, something happened to Elon Muskembarrassment: deciding to demonstrate the strength of glass, he threw a metal ball at it. And cracks appeared on the glass, which Tesla representatives clearly did not expect.

Now the head of the company said on Twitter,Why did it happen so. According to him, before this, the pickup door was hit with a sledgehammer, and the base of the glass was damaged. Therefore, when they threw the ball after that, cracks appeared. If they had done everything the other way around—first the ball, then the sledgehammer—the glass would have held up.

In any case, Musk says the pickup will need to be improved before production begins.

By the way, the network continues to troll the unusualTesla Cybertruck design. Lego's Australian division couldn't resist, too, posting the image with the comment: “The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed impact resistance."
